Playing the exact same way he did yesterday but getting the calls, he could just as easily have scored 33-35 points on 25 shots, because 3 of those FGA would have been erased and instead would have been him at the line getting an extra 4-6 FTAs.
DD is least of my worries now, he is playing hard and is slowly earning respect from the refs.
